Id hate to loose it. Ive read elsewhere others have lost it too, then some say it grows like a weed....
I got mine off of ebay and it came in looking a bit brown. I thought I was seeing things, but I think I got a bad batch. It was kind of brown and crunch instead of dark green and soft. I might try again, my LFS I just found has java moss. It would be great cover for the shrimp.

It's been three weeks and my plants have really taken off with the new CFLs. The plants have grown in so much I'm having to cut them back to keep them under control!



You can see an oto cat stuck to the glass, helping out with the brown algae bloom coming from the tank being up and running for almost two months. He has friends, there are a total of three on clean up duty. The just have to be swapped from side to side as needed. Not. EASY. They are quick little devils, and as my tank is becoming heavily planted, there are a lot of places to hide. i had a lot of damage control to do after today's side swap.

I still have ghost shrimp hiding away in there. With all of the plants, it's harder to count, but I saw three all at the same time today so I'm pretty sure I still have my four ghosties in there.

So what to do with all of my cuttings and my little one gallon tank? I went ahead and set up the one gallon with a sponge filter and my cuttings as a future nano tank for some red cherry shrimp, probably just three or four. If they reproduce? Lunch is served for the bettas.



It should be cute when it grows in.

it looks awesome! I'm totally jealous. No tank lights here. Well, the tank sits below my kitchen cabinets which have under-cabinet lights. It's more than enough to see the pretty fishies but not enough for plants. Sigh...
